Korean idol JR or Jonghyun from the boy group Nu’est recently celebrated his birthday, and fans celebrated it in style. In fact, these fans even rented out subway billboard ads just to greet him a happy birthday. And because his fans really love him, JR went out to check out these fan greetings himself. However, given how popular he is, fans might mob him the moment he sets foot in a train station. So, how does he go around this? Well, he dressed up as a Pokemon… to be exact, Squirtle!
